                             Water & Air by Cat Power
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From 1996's 'What Would The Community Think'. Figured this one out by accident. I think
that for the most part it's correct, but she strings together the riffs throughout the
song and the patterns are hard to pin down, so listen to the song to get a good idea on 
it. I've provided a guide on the structure with timing, but it may not be one hundred
percent perfect.

Lyrics:

    I was dragged out
    By the shore man
    A very poor man
    A very nice man
    A family man

    My lover drifted down the river
    Below the dark water
    The devil all around

    Yesterday on the street
    Someone called out your name
    Someone thought that you were me

    Last night there was a party
    I could not go
    I walked around it
    I thought about it
    All night long

    Today there is a newspaper
    About you and me
    And the day we were married
    The same day

    The same day they fell in love
    The same day they died in love
    I did not want you to die alone

    Rusty river, run down
    Run, run as fast as you can, oh, run
    Rusty river, run ragged
    And drag my lover south back to me
    I'll meet him there
    Water and air

    Oh, to be at the bottom of a river
    Below the dark water
    The devil all around
    The devil all around
